Hetton-le-Hole Skip Hire FAQs
Do you deliver to other areas in Tyne and Wear?
Yes, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide skips to areas across Tyne and Wear, such as Hetton-le-Hole, Jarrow, Whickham and Tynemouth. So no matter where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?
No. You must only load your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up above this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you could be told to take away the surplus waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or any other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this gives you plenty of time to fill your skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, if you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Hetton-le-Hole?
We have created our booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to type in your address to check out the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in Hetton-le-Hole. Pick the right size to meet your needs and provide us with the details of where and when you would like your skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment with the secure payment system, and we will send you an email to confirm the order as soon as your order is done!
Can I throw all sorts of waste in my skip?
You are able to throw a wide array of waste in the skip. This includes timber, tile, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden jobs are permitted too. Cupboards and worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in the skip.
However, there are some materials that can’t be put in a skip a result of the possible ecological or health risk they can trigger.
You are unable to throw out your fridge, computer monitor or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items include hazardous elements in one kind or another. They should be disposed of separately from normal rubbish.
If you want hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise an independent collection for this waste. Feel free to contact us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is probably the most popular skip used in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building and construction jobs, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip is the largest option that you can use for heavy waste materials such as garden soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the various waste materials, such as wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What size skips do you deliver?
We supply a full range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip suitable for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common option for bigger tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Hetton-le-Hole firms with a large amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Hetton-le-Hole?
Preferably, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a domestic job, then your drive is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you must get a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on a street, grass verge as well as other public property in Hetton-le-Hole. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued for you. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver your skip. Providing we are able to gain access to where you want it positioned, we are able to take care of it all.
When you are not likely to be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For instance, you may want the skip to be positioned on a particular area of your drive. Alternatively, you might need to make sure the skip doesn’t prevent access to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will ensure the directions are passed on to the lorry driver.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
If you manage a company in Hetton-le-Hole and need to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a perfect option. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the name implies, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, in contrast to regular skips, which are lifted using chains.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will usually incur a fee for the wasted trip.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door helps make loading waste into the skip much easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste like garden soil or hardcore, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away large bulky objects such as pieces of furniture easier as well.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, however this may sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a door is required, and we will do our best to supply this.

What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to take on numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in the skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electronic waste items in your skip. This can include such things as computers, cookers, tumble dryers, refrigerators and monitors. Electrical objects can’t be discarded in the skip since they can have dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
Other areas covered include Jarrow, Whickham, Tynemouth, Houghton-le-Spring, Washington, Wallsend, Sunderland and Whitley Bay.
